Additionally, the Grant Aerona Air Source Heat Pump came runner up in the new category of ‘Innovative Product of the Year’.  Anna Wakefield, Marketing Manager for Grant UK commented: “We are thrilled to receive this level of industry recognition for our Aerona Air Source Heat Pump.  Having been in development for over 18 months and the official launch only in January this year, the award is testament to Grant’s commitment to appliance quality, reliability and peace of mind for those purchasing any of our renewable technologies.”
